Our philosophy

The Montessori philosophy is an education for life – a learning process where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace in a safe, caring and carefully prepared environment designed to foster independent thinkers who are actively engaged in the learning process.

We seek to create a genuine community spirit by building rapport among teachers, the community, parents and children.  At  Chapel hill Montessori, we value the relationship we have with the children's families.  Our goal is to support you in giving your child the best opportunities to achieve their full potential

We believe the Montessori method of education is “an education for life”.  The Montessori philosophy is underpinned by a profound respect for the child.  The children learn to respect themselves, respect others and respect their environment.  These are lifelong skills.

The Montessori equipment addresses practical life skills, fine motor development, hand eye coordination, development of all the senses, writing, reading, numeracy, geography, history, biology, science, art and music.  By combining all these areas, we give each child a strong foundation for later learning.
